The Grey Zone Movie Synopsis
Based on actual events, this is the staggeringly powerful story of the Auschwitz's twelfth Sonderkommando - one of the thirteen consecutive
'Special Squads' of Jewish prisoners placed by the Nazis in the excruciating moral dilemma of helping to exterminate fellow Jews in exchange
for a few more months of life.
The Sonderkommando struggles to organize the only armed revolt that would ever take place at Auschwitz. As the rebellion is about to
commence, a group from the unit discovers a fourteen-year-old girl who has miraculously survived a gassing. A catalyst for their desperate attempt at
personal redemption, the men become obsessed with saving this one child even as doing so endangers the uprising which could save thousands.
An amazing film. Hard to believe, but important to know...i`m so glad I got to see a movie like this...it strikes so much emotion in you...portrays unbelievable events...
It brings me some piece knowing people fought to save others including my family. Well done movie.
More powerful than Shindler`s List. Absolutely amazing.
